TrouwAmsterdam & CineSonic present: New Music for Found Footage.
From August till November 2014 TrouwAmsterdam & CineSonic present a new series of four events dedicated to found footage cinema and live electronic music: New Music for Found Footage.
#4 Shackleton meets Peter Delpeut’s Lyrisch Nitraat
Dutch filmmaker Peter Delpeut is among Europe’s most respected contemporary experimental filmmakers. Delpeut's career started in 1984 with the short film Emma Zunz and was followed by thirteen more films and documentaries. His latest documentary Immer Fernweh was awarded with a Gouden Kalf in 2012.
Lyrisch Nitraat consists of clips from various silent films printed on decaying film stock originally part of the Desmet Colletion, creating an abstract collage of frames and clips which compose a poetic mediation on cinema and on the fleeting nature of human existence itself.This tribute to early cinema, constructed from restored colour-tinted nitrate films in different stages of deteriorations, has been reviewed as “the work of a poet” by The New York Times and awarded internationally since its release in 1991. Live Score by Shackleton
Arguably one of the most relevant names from the first and second wave of UK's dubstep scene, Shackleton is renowned for his productions as much as for his live performances. Shackleton's approach to electronic music is strikingly unique, blending heavily processed beats to make complex poly-rhythmic percussive patterns and using melodies and scales that are uncommon in Western music.
Found footage filmmaking has its roots in experimental cinema and the avant-garde traditions of the 1920s and 1930s. As the term 'found footage' suggests, filmmakers and artists working within this genre/practise utilise already existing “found” fragments to create new works. Through reassembling, de-contextualising or 'remixing', pre-existing fragments are given new meaning and new narratives are created.
Before the main event, from 19:00h Lyrisch Nitraat will be screened once with its original soundtrack.
Both screenings can be attended with one single ticket.
DJ Bura Basher's Meditation Sound (UK) will be playing before and after Shackleton's live show.
